Do you get sound when playing the DX with its own keys? That would rule out a problem on the monitoring side of things.

Do you have another MIDI cable to try? That would rule out a bad cable.

I don't know the icon keyboard, but maybe there's some setting to check. Local MIDI, MIDI out, physical DIN MIDI vs. USB MIDI out, something like that.

Cheers and good luck :drinks:

Just wanted to rule it out, and of course excuse me if you know this, but MIDI does not transmit sound, only sends data to tell the instrument to play etc.
